I think I can honestly say this is one of the funniest movies I've seen in a while. It's a crime caper, but the criminals are all so blundering that it's completely hysterical. There's about 6 different story lines of people trying to steal a diamond to stay alive, and it gets tossed back and forth between different people trying to get it for different bosses. Then there's a guy trying to get a gypsy to fight because he knocked out another fighter. Brad Pitt is the gypsy or Pikey as they say in the movie and he's almost completely incomprehensible. I could understand a lot of what he said, but not nearly all of it. Jason Statham is in it as a guy named Turkish. He's always great. Dennis Farina, Rade Serbedzija, Benicio Del Toro, and a bunch of other cool people are all in it.

A British Gangster comedy.
